When I was looking up how to spell "sparkly" online, I ran across this entry in the Urban Dictionary:
Sparkley Purple Zebra
A sparkley purple zebra is a nickname used to describe a woman who is beautiful, intelligent, awesome and who can always make your day. Sparkley purple zebras can be very hard to come by and should be cherished and loved.
Yep, misspelling and all, that is Lydia, she is my sparkley purple zebra. And today, my sparkley purple zebra is FIVE YEARS OLD!!
